The Go Explore Viet Nam Immersive Art exhibition presents a selected collection of photography and videography artwork, featuring different destinations across Viet Nam to create an immersive art space, combined with diverse visual and sound effects such as lighting, experimental/electronic music and art performances.

“We want to bring the image of Viet Nam as well as the Vietnamese people, art and cultures closer to the world through creative photographs and videos. Through this art and cultural event, we want to create a chance for everyone to experience art, including both art lovers and the travel community,” said Huong Nguyen, a travel blogger and founder of the exhibition project.

It comprises three main art spaces: Landscapes of Viet Nam, Humans of Viet Nam, and Life in Viet Nam.

Project Go Explore

This exhibition is a part of Go Explore, a non-profit community project aiming to promote Viet Nam’s tourism, art and culture. The project was launched by travel bloggers and videographers, local companies and travellers across Viet Nam.

Go Explore’s team has travelled around the country to produce 10 short videos promoting 10 destinations, photos and articles to market Viet Nam tourism in a fun, and creative way. They have also organised three travel-themed events in HCM City, Da Nang, and Ha Noi to encourage Vietnamese people to travel more, and guide like-minded travellers on how to combine their passion for travelling and working remotely.

The exhibition runs until September 1 at Heritage Space located at Dolphin Plaza, 6 Nguyen Hoang Street, in Nam Tu Liem District. — VNS
